Johnnie Walker Red Label was launched in its current form by brothers George and Alexander Walker in 1909, though it had existed as Walker's Special Old Highland Red Label for some years previously. Alexander blended a type of whisky which is more suited to mixing with soda than the heavier, more old-fashioned whiskies, and named it after his grandfather, who had started the family business in 1820. Today it is the world's most popular whisky and is sold in more than 200 markets world-wide.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy A

    Nose: Sour apple, toffee and light spice. Hints of vanilla sponge and caraway.

    Palate: Soft and gentle, with sweet grain, sour apple, vanilla cream and white pepper. Caramel and toffee sweetness develops.

    Finish: Short and sweet, with growing apple skin tannin and a touch of fruit.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: Hints of fresh apple, pear and the spark of zest from the elegant Speyside malts. 

    Palate: Fruity sweetness, cinnamon and pepper crackling on the centre of your tongue.

    Finish: A sophisticated, smoky finish - the signature of all Johnnie Walker blends.

    It's is amazing, best low end whiskey you can buy. Got through half a bottle of 750ml. Beautiful! If your looking for a quality scotch I would recommend it! Cheers

    It is a good blend, but you have to understand what you are drinking (I believe it is a blend of a peated one one more malty and sweet). Might improve with some water? Try. I think it is a good step to begin understanding what a scotch whisky was, is, or should be. Definitely not a cheap one, though not perfect. More gentle to the head than to the stomach...

    The red label was the first whisky I ever tried I like its spicy nature but no matter how I drink it with water, neat, on the rocks, or with coke I always have a headache the next day

    I have always found the JW Red to be a little rough. Not good value for the price. There are better alternatives for the price.

    I had Black Label first, and for me, there''s no comparison - Black is a huge jump in quality from Red Label. JW Red Label tastes light and cheap. If you''re looking for a great lighter blended scotch, go for Ballantine''s Finest; it runs circles around this stuff.

    Least end of Johnnie Walker products. Doest taste gud except for people who used to drink low end cheap stuff. One gud thing is the brand name and no doubt on quality.

    Johnnie (Sleep) Walker... This Speyside mix makes me sleep like a baby. Love the spicy peppery undertones of this blend. Smokey backbone makes it a starter to explore all the rest of the JW Brand

    I was surprised with this one, my favorite has always been black label (or blue of course), But tried this at a party where this is all they had, I really liked it''s smoothness... then the price.

    One of my favourites! JW Red never leaves my glass display. Moreover, it gives me that unexplainable taste and smoky aftertaste i''m always looking for as an islay single malt fanatic. Simply the best NAS out there!

    Its a decent enough budget blend. More than a hint of peat smokiness. Somewhat oily, rich and sweet. Well suited to mixing.

    Great value for the price. Rough, smokey, and not fruity. I like the oak and the malt notes of this whisky, far better than any other whiskies at the price. In Santiago de Chile you can find it at about $15 bucks.
